How to Get Libraries Student Assistant Program Credit for Attendance

Student assistants are welcome to take as many of the workshops offered for program credit in Fall 2021 as they would like to take. However, due to budget limitations students can only be paid for three completed workshops, with their supervisor's approval. 
This means the student assistant will receive one hour of paid time for each of the first three certificate program workshops they complete in the Fall 2021 semester. The student will receive program credits for EVERY completed workshop offered for credit, i.e. one Academic Skills credit for each ASC Nature of Success workshop.
